    Anybody else waiting to see this movie?

    Searching for Sugarman

    A great story from the NYT here.

    I love the guy's music. Just incredible stuff. So sad that he gets no royalties from the sales of his records! He is a star in many countries and never made a penny from those records. He lived a life of manual labor and poverty.

    Saw this movie yesterday at the Amsterdam documentary festival. The scenario is a perfect build up of tension.

    I liked the music too. Specially the unique woody bass tone. I wonder who did play that bass.
